After recently finding out about the many health benefits of adding cilantro to smoothies, which I posted about here, I decided to check out another commonly-used herb: parsley.
Turns out, parsley is another nutrient-packed herb, that shouldn’t be considered just as a garnish or to ”pretty-up” a bowl of soup.
You can read one of many online articles about the health benefits of parsley at Chatelaine.com. This article also includes a smoothie recipe that’s suppose to be great for reducing bloating and water retention.
I’m going to give parsley a whirl in a smoothie soon.
Let me know if you try it too! Or if you have already.
